1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Problem from an exam that I just did is really bugging me.

lim(x,y)->(0,0) (x*y^{2})/(x^{2}+y^{4})

The attempt at a solution[/b]

At first I thought the limit didn't exist. I tried using paths, x=y^{1/2}, but then I couldn't find a counter example for which a path approached at a different point. So then I tried using the squeeze theorem, and got that the limit is 0. :\

Was my approach to the problem correct? is the limit really 0?
